recommendation of the joint chiefs of staff, the obama administration will announce formally tomorrow that the ban on women in combat is over. they had been making some progress in this direction, recently opening up the special operations aviation command to female pilots, and last year opening uabout 14,000 positions in the military that had been previously off limits to women. but this announcement could open up 230,000 new jobs to women over the course of the next year. the various service branches will make their own plans for how to do it. if there are individual specific jobs that they still want exempt for women, that they want exempt from this new policy, the service chiefs can ask for that. but that will not be the expectation. the priority, of course, is still military readiness and combat effectiveness above all. but they are making this move, starting tomorrow, to make serving equally recognized, equally. to clear the way for women in combat. joining us now is one of the women whose legal case on this issue may have helped push the military to this decision. she is captai
political advantage over the obama administration, over hillary clinton in particular over the attack in benghazi, what ended up looming unexpectedly large over these proceedings was how benghazi is not an unprecedented thing. the state department has had its personnel and its facilities in danger and facing different kinds of attack over and over and over and over again for decades all over the world. and the attempted political acrimony of today's hearing ended up kind of dead-ending today whenever secretary clinton would bring back what congress does not see as a priority does not see the safety that work at the state department and the resources to ensure that safety. and yes, there is a political agenda to be driven, always, always. but in terms of steps necessary to protect people, so far hillary clinton made the case today that congress has been against it. specifically right now, members of the republican-controlled house have been against it. >> we have asked the congress to help us real locate funds. the senate has given us that authority. we don't yet have it from the house
also e-mail us. we're asking you this morning your advice for the second obama administration. isedobama speech rate stark choices, says the new york times. we would like to hear from you this morning, what you think republican options are and what your advice is. here's what's happening on capitol hill today. house gop poised to extend the debt limit. that's the headline in "usa today." the bill would buy time and would set the stage for a physical fight. house republicans are scheduled to vote today to extend a $16.40 trillion at the opening salvo in a renewed battle this year to pass a federal budget and reduce the debt. the headline in the washington times, the front page looks like this -- the reporter on that story and joins us now from the "washington times. good morning and thanks for being with us. guest: thanks for having me. host: when do we expect the vote and why is it significant? guest: because we are fresh off the president's inauguration, it is significant. the fight over the debt ceiling in many ways has defined the last two years as far as spending, because
.s. ambassador chris stevens from the bay area. congressional republicans have accused the obama administration of ignoring signs of deteriorating security in libya so in doubt they will have many questions for secretary of state, hillary clinton, whose testimony was delayed because of medical issues. abc7 news reporter will have much more coming up in a live report next half hour. >> later today, air national guard will leave mountain view for deployment. members from the 129th recuse wing or on a mission to afghanistan. final deployment preparations are underway at 10:30 with the national guard not knowing the exact departure time. 75 citizen airmen from the bay area are leaving to provide support to our troops. >> state lawmakers in sacramento are dealing with something they are not used to, excess cash. california is expected to end this month with an extra $4 billion in income taxes. it is reported that the boom is likely because of tax changes at the state and federal level and experts say the extra income top earners made at the end of december such as bonuses and dividend payments is al
's not been an attempt to have stability in libya. the obama administration has been repeating the mistake that the bush administration made in iraq and afghanistan. they were focused on the military campaign but not focus on the nation building. we have paid a huge cost for that in iraq afghanistan. a lot of the arms in the arsenal of muammar gaddafi have been smuggled into countries like y fueled a the fi fresh insurgency. we have taken our eye off the ball in libya ever since the overthrow of gaddafi. that's the big issue from the hearings. host: our guest is max boot, senior fellow with the council on foreign relations. was a senior foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent inve
the obama administration is taking to beef up security at u.s. facilities worldwide. >> as i have said many times, i take responsibility, and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure. heather: doug mckelway is live for us on capitol hill with the very latest. doug, we're learning new details seems moment by moment. what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, most recent thing, senator rand paul absolutely skewering the secretary of state moments ago calling the attack on benghazi the worst since 9/11. he said he would have removed the secretary of state from her post because of that. among other new revelations she was asked directly if she was made aware of requests by ambassador stevens and others for heightened security in benghazi in light of 30 previous security threats and two specific attacks? here was her response. >> first, let's start on the night of september 11th itself and those difficult early days. i directed our response from the state department, stayed in close contact with of
diligence vetting obama. maybe it comes from the fatigue from the vetting the bush administration for eight years and how difference the coverage was for president bush and the inauguration and other events. the trip down memory lanes and look at the coverage of president bush, the inauguration in 2005. what a difference. >> on world news tonight sunday, president bush prepares for his second inauguration. in a time of war and natural disaster, is it time for a lavish celebration. >> do you think the balls and some of the excess are appropriate or is it forgivable. >> many have wondered whether given the war and all of our security challenges right now, it's appropriate to have a lavish and expensive inaugural celebration. >> wow, somebody pinch me. is there any doubt how abusively biased the mainstream media is when it comes to barack obama? and joining me now with more of the over the top examples of media bias and the fawning over the president yesterday is none other than the president of the media research center we welcome back brother brent bozell, welcome back. >> how you doing, bro
be an obama doctrine that applies globally? >> i think it's always helpful for a president and an administration to have a foreign policy and a philosophy about how to approach foreign policy, but you are right that even the greatest enunciation of strategy can be impacted by kind of the short-term retactical challenges that you have, and a really volatile world, whether it's the middle east. i chair a subcommittee that has all the middle east and all of south and central asia. very volatile regions of the world. >> i want to play one piece of sound. i mean, as far as this being a layup, as i said earlier, it seems to be his confirmation is all but assured. senator kerry did mention the use of drones. i thought this was really interesting. let's replay the sound from earlier this morning. >> president obama and every one of us here knows that american foreign policy is not defined by drones and deployments alone. we cannot allow the extraordinary good that we do to save and change lives, to be eclipsed entirely by the role that we have had to play since september 11th. a ro
go. is it your spence sense that president obama and his administration may not care enough to do something about these murders on 9/11? >> my primary concern they have no plan. if they have a plan, they really need to re-look at metrics of how it is working. we have large aid donors who are more willing to accommodate the terrorists than our demands for justice. we have basically the move of al-qaeda's base from afghanistan to 5,000 miles closer to the united states across northern africa and on europe's doorstep is profoundly important strategic change and the administration has nothing to say about it. that is deeply troubling. >> gregg: what do you expect, if anything, that is meaningful, that is, from hillary clinton or will it be subterfuge. >> she learned the art of the filibuster. there will be some long questions and maybe some long responses. i hope that we get some sense for why did the state department have realtime information that went against what the administration had to say for weeks after this profound event. why have we run into these difficulties with the inve

state of the obama administration's response to the attack. four months later, the administration still cannot or will not name the terrorist groups responsible for the attacks or the names of these group leaders. four months later, despite constant video footage that many members of congress have seen and many eyewitnesses, not a single benghazi terrorist suspect is in custody. four months later, the unfinished business has had access to only one suspect, ali, for just three hours and the tunisian government kept the f.b.i. team waiting for more than five weeks -- five weeks when they were finally granted access. four months later, the administration still has not discussed the serious between the groups behind the benghazi attack and the leaders of the attack on the u.s. embassies in cairo, tunis the same week of september 11. four months later, following the pickering report on state department failures leading up to the attack, not a single state department employee has been fired and held responsible for their role in denying adequate security for the consulate in benghazi. four mo

already increased the debt limit over $5 trillion in the obama administration, almost a 50% inkeys in the debt limit. let me also say we have had many, several, temporary short-term increases in the debt limit before there's been a more permanent long-term increase in 1987, 1990, 1996. it is not unprecedented, the action we're going to be taking today. with that, i yield two minutes to the distinguished member of the ways and means committee, the gentleman from washington state, mr. reichert. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for two minutes. mr. reichert: thank you, mr. speaker. let me see if i can simplify this a little bit. so there's three branches of government. two branches of the government have responsibility for the budget. and there's three piece to those two branches. the white house is one, the administration needs to produce a budget. the house republicans need to produce a budget. the senate democrats need to produce a budget. for the system to work. well, the president produced his budget. even though we may not agree with it on this side of the ai

's transpired in the last year of the campaign, realities of the obama administration taking its campaign organization that raised a billion.one dollars in the last four years, now being transformed into an operation to advance the obama agenda, means republicans will play nice today they'll maturity the president today and ready to do battle tomorrow. we'll send it back to new york under a beautiful inaugural sunrise. >> gretchen: all right. exactly what's going to happen. carl cameron, thank you so much. we can thank brian for you being first. >> brian: right. >> gretchen: let's go to the number two guy, doug mckelway who is sometimes number one. thousands of people joined the president and vice president as they make their way from the capitol to the white house. this is all part of the parade, right, doug? >> sure is, gretchen. i wish you guys had come to me about a half hour earlier because we had the most spectacular sunrise. we're facing east along the pennsylvania avenue, facing toward the capitol and the sun came up directly behind the capitol. we are situated here at freedom pla
-mile project to the obama administration. the president has pushed back a decision on the project until after march, but the pipeline's future remains in doubt as president obama rejected a plan a year ago, you'll recall, saying the legislation didn't give enough time for the government to give it a thorough review. >> and you know, michael steele, we were talking this morning about how the republicans move forward in a more thoughtful, strategic way. still being tough. >> yeah. >> you can be tough. you can be conservative. you can still be smart. >> be smart. that's right. >> we haven't been smart. a guy who has been smart, chris christie. new quinnipiac poll numbers out this morning. i want you guys -- republicans, you can actually be conservative. you can actually fight, and you can actually win. listen to these numbers. chris christie's approval rating right now, 74% in new jersey. with a 21% disapproval. he's 56% approval rating among democrats, 78% among independents. and was governor christie right to criticize john boehner? 79% say yes. 15% say no. 70% of republicans say yes, th
economic recovery and economic prosperity in america. they feel president obama is not getting behind this surplus we have. you heard the caller touch upon that when he mentioned what happened, on the moratorium on drilling. it was contested in court and the administration lost that fight. there is a question about how much obama will get behind that. yesterday he talked about climate change and other things. i think the next four years may be tough for energy producers. guest: natural gas has become so plentiful and prices have come down so much that is changing a lot of the economics of the energy industry. that plays right into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than coal begins to replace coal as the primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that oil and gas production is higher than it has ever been and that is true as the economy comes back but there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and a job poli
, and the administration lost that. the question about how much obama will get behind that. he did not mention it yesterday in his speech. he talked about climate change and suggested going in the opposite direction. the next four years may be a tough one for energy producers. guest: shall pass has become so plentiful and prices of it -- natural gas has become so plentiful and prices of it has come down so much it is changing the economics of the industry, which plays into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than cold begins to replace coal as a primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that will and gas production is higher than it has ever been, and that is true as the economy comes back. there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and job policy. that is one of the reasons why obama takes every opportunity he can to point out this clean energy proposal, because don't wait politically that the white house sees an opportunity to
